Still They Pray

Master of Alchemy 1-4 are solid Cough. There is a change of tone with Let it Bleed; the song really resonated, in a similar way to Machine Head's song The Burning Red. Shadow of the Torturer is another change of tone and style; an instrumental, the first 4 minutes is very much a stoner vibe. The Wounded Hours is the first time I have heard a Hammond Organ used in doom; it is a very natural combination. Finale with the acoustic Still They Prey. I salute Cough for having personal integrity, the results are awesome. Favorite track: The Wounding Hours.

Reuben Sammitch Quality doom all the way through. Sure, there are obvious Windhand and Electric Wizard influences, but that is to be expected given the personnel involved. Heavy but rarely formulaic. Recommended to all doomed heads. Favorite track: Dead Among the Roses.

Dumb mmmn don't try and do anything delicate when listening to this... there are some serious vibrations coming up from this massive release... they will raze anything you're trying to do well before you're done with it Favorite track: Masters of Torture.

about

COUGH return with their first album in over five years. Produced by Electric Wizard’s Jus Oborn and recorded by Oborn and Windhand’s Garrett Morris, 'Still They Pray' is the kind of monolithic cosmic doom that will take the listener to the heights of despair and the bottom of the abyss. With 'Still They Pray', COUGH summon psychedelic feedback-driven melodies just to deconstruct them to their core. This is easily COUGH at their most focused: pessimistic riffs and tortured grooves collide in melodic agony alongside a hallucinogenic blend of harsh and clean incantations, crushing and cathartic yet utterly mesmerizing. Step through the gates of madness and stare into the void.
